West Ham were interested in signing Espanyol midfielder Marc Roca ahead of last week's transfer deadline, say reports in Spain.

According to a story in the (Spanish) Daily Sport on Wednesday, Serie A side were considering triggering the player's 40million release clause and sending the 22-year-old midfielder to West Ham on loan for the remainder of the season.

However the deal is said to have fallen through after Inter decided they they were not prepared to meet the La Liga side's valuation of the player, who is just two years left to run on his five year contract signed in 2017.

The midfielder, who began his career as a child with Barcelona moved to his current club ten years ago. Roca made his first team debut for the Periquitos B squad in 2014 before making the A team two years later, since when he has made 42 appearances for the club.

West Ham are said to be continuing to monitor the player's situation.
